The mind is an incredible tool. When we utilize it correctly, we are able to reach heights that were previously thought of as unattainable. The key to applying your mind correctly is using the power of focus to push away distractions or negative thoughts. Focus can be a double edged sword; it can be applied in a positive way or it can be applied in a way that prevents you from actualizing your potential. Throughout your entrepreneurial journey, there will be many opportunities for distractions to take your focus away from where it should be properly applied. There are times where problems or set-backs arise and we tend to allow ourselves to sink into our circumstances by meditating on the worst possible outcomes. It’s important to recognize how focus can be applied in a way detrimental to your success. Being aware of how it can hurt you helps to make you realize that it can be used in a positive manner. The first step towards change is self-awareness after all.
Have you encountered a hurdle in your life where you knew that a “leap of faith” was worse in your mind than the actual “leap” itself? Our mind plays tricks on us often, but only if you allow it to. Focusing on the positive outcomes or benefits allows you to disregard anything that will hinder you from completing the task at hand. Fear, doubt, and loss of hope will always pervade your thought process. Focus is the tool that should be used for discarding those insecurities.
Like in a camera lens, if your focus is not properly calibrated, you will never see what’s in front of you. Your vision is obscured, blurry, and distracted. However, if you take the steps to calibrate your focus, then your vision is clear and precise.
